I've been absent from MEDEV for 10 weeks (after surgery) so am trying to catch up with everything that's happened while I've been away. Rather than 20 posts of "stuff", here's a summary of bits and pieces that have been sent to me and links some people might find interesting:
These videos are particularly interesting and full of good ideas - "How I use my iPad".
The VetEdSymp is a chance for all the veterinary educationalists to get together to share best practice and come up with new ideas. I have many friends there so I was really sorry to miss this year. My thanks to Suzanne Hardy (MEDEV) for creation of my poster and to (the new Doctor!) Liz Mossop for presenting the poster on PublishOER.
Speaking of PublishOER and all things related - the landscape is constantly changing. Notable links are:
Ian wrote a thought-provoking blog post about his children who "Don't 'Do' Email" which is potentially worrying - if we need to contact our students directly. He recommends a good idea.
Vets fom Liverpool have been helping out at the Equestrian events during the Olympics.
Presenting their "sterile" version of 'You Can't Touch This!" for their Final Revue 2012 - I particularly love the dance routine in, what looks like, the Equine Centre. All the videos I've seen are great but I have to also mention how much I liked their their version of the Barclaycard advert - enjoy!
The Animals Inside Out' exhbition at the Natural History Museum closes on 16th September so if you want to see it - you have one month left!
Phewf! That's all for the moment folks - now back to catching up on email...!
